Our one-of-a-kind activities include tubing down an old sugar plantation irrigation system, through open canals and several tunnels hand-dug circa 1870. Or you can soar through the air on our 7-line zipline course, traversing the side of a mountain down to a lush bamboo grove. Through it all you will learn about our island’s history, culture and natural environment. Come join us and take home memories for a lifetime!
The mission of Kauai Backcountry Adventures is to provide eco-tourism activities that are accessible to a broad range of people. Our zipline and tubing tours have minimal environmental impact and contribute to the preservation of Kauai’s history and culture. We have helped to restore sections of the old plantation irrigation system, which are now used for the Mountain Tubing Adventure. “We are pleased to be able to set a standard for balancing recreational activities and preservation of our amazing resources here on Kauai. We have opened up spectacular lands never before available to the public. Our exclusive access ensures careful stewardship of the land, total privacy and a genuinely unique experience”, says KBA owner Kelley Carswell Haneberg, member of a 5th generation Hawaii family.

We had a blast on the tubing adventure. Our guide Mason was fantastic, fun, knowledgeable, musically gifted, and genuinely friendly and kind. He made this activity the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Not strenuous. A lot of fun. Highly recommend. Bring cheap water shoes (Amazon.) If you're having trouble securing a reservation keep trying their website. It took me trying 6 times per day for a week until I found some spots that opened up, and I'm so glad I persisted.
We were able to experience the tubing adventure with Sherri as our guide. She was amazing. Disney's jungle cruise skippers could learn a thing or two from Sherri. She was so funny and made the whole experience worth every penny. She shared great insights and history into the landscape on the way up to the tubing, and then favored us with ukulele and singing the whole way down stream. If we ever make it back to Kauai, the trip will not be complete without doing this adventure again! Wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
